CBSC Fishing Derby standings Phase I

Derby #1 2015
Contributor: Kelley Adams, Cholla Bay Sportsmen’s Club
The first four days of the 60th CBSC Fishing Derby (April 9th-12th) were very successful with eighty plus entrants and thirty plus derby eligible boats launched. The quality and quantity of fish caught was very good as was the weather, except for a windy Sunday. Among the outstanding angler catches were three groupers over seventy lbs., a 24lb. flounder, some, large for the northern gulf, yellowtail, several sardinero and multiple white sea bass (target fish for the 1st phase) with a 50 pounder plucked from the sea by Kim Johns, for which she was awarded the “Target Fish” rod and reel. The biggest fish, an 88lb. grouper was brought in by Keith Busby. Everyone in Cholla Bay should be grateful for the economic boost that the derby produces and look forward to the upcoming two May (7-10 & 21-23) derby weekends culminating with the fish fry and awards festivities May 24th. Let’s go fishing!   Lucky Chucky
